Key Stakeholders The Oval Events Limited (OEL) is Surrey County Cricket Club’s joint venture with Compass Group PLC. OEL manages and operates all match day catering, hospitality, and bar services as well as non-match day catering, conferences and event management services at The Oval. The secret of the success of OEL is the combined ambition and professionalism of all parties to work as a truly ‘powerful partnership’ to deliver world class experiences at The Oval. The Oval, currently known for sponsorship reasons as the Kia Oval, is an international cricket ground in Kennington, in the London Borough of Lambeth, South London. The Oval has been the home ground of Surrey County Cricket Club since it was opened in 1845. It was the first ground in England to host international Test cricket in September 1880. The final Test match of the English season is traditionally played there. In addition to cricket, The Oval has hosted several other historically significant sporting events. In 1870, it staged England's first international football match, versus Scotland. It hosted the first FA Cup final in 1872, as well as those between 1874 and 1892. In 1876, it held both the England v Wales and England v Scotland rugby international matches, and in 1877, rugby's first Varsity match. It also hosted the final of the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017.
